Honeymoon Safari
5/5

Very well organised from the start. Ernest our guide was fantastic and knew where all the big 5 were hiding.
The lodges were great and the food fantastic. It was a great trip from start to finish.
Transfers also worked well from Zanzibar to Serengeti. Airport pick up was always on time. A great all round experience.

3-day Fly in Safari & Kilimanjaro foothills
5/5

The only way to describe our Safari Soles experience was total perfection. From the minute we made our enquiry to them, they were fantastic, extremely helpful and informative. Renatus assisted us promptly and helped us tailor our trip to suit our timescales, budget and wants. He was contactable whilst we were away and was brilliant throughout.

We opted for a three-day, fly in fly out from Zanzibar, including the day trip to the foothills of Kilimanjaro (day 1), safari in the Tarangire park (day 2) and finally a trip to the Ngorongoro crater (day 3).

Day 1 Foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro - We are glad we added the first day because it meant we could maximise the safari days without the flight in the morning, but the experience itself was unbelievable. Our guide and driver Baltazari was lovely, very informative and made sure we maximised our day. He taught us about local culture as well as his personal experiences, whilst taking us on a fantastic walk to the Materuni waterfall which was stunning, a coffee plantation and a beautiful hot spring.

Day 2 & 3 Tarangire Safari and Ngorongoro crater - Our safari days were unforgettable and made so due to our guide Simon, better known as the Safari Monster!! He was so lovely, a fantastic driver and guide and without him our days would not have been as good as they were - he went above and beyond. Without him, we would not have seen the Big 5 in 24hours, a new record! We put our trust in him and he delivered the best experience we have ever had.

Out of the animals we saw including, giraffes, elephants and lions (and much more) it is incredibly hard to see leopards and rhinos out on safari but we saw it all!! Even telling local people on our return about it they said that it is unheard of and that we had a very special trip.

We would highly recommend you book a trip with him and he would be our first choice for any future experience with Safari Soles (fingers crossed). Simon is a legend and we miss him already!

One difference that set Safari Soles apart from other tours we saw on Safari was the food that we had whilst out on the game drives. We had full meals, prepared and cooked by local people in comparison to the sandwich and juice box other groups had and it was delicious!

Overall, our experience was 11/10. If you are thinking of booking a trip to Tanzania, Safari Soles and the guides we have mentioned - they are a fantastic choice.

Perfect, professional, Safari experts
5/5

Perfect, from first contact to the end. The company managed the issues with flight operators, and then we saw a leopard every day, the big five in Ngorogoro in just two hour. Nature is nature but the service during the trip was exeptional. Ever tried a lamb in Serengeti? I almost refused and was surprised. Special thanks to Innocenti, who is the best guide and driver and a really caring person.

An amazing safari tour
5/5

Bryson arranged a fantastic safari for our family of four. Starting with an early pick up from our hotel in Zanzibar, through flight to Seronera airstrip, three days in the Serengeti, a day in Ngorongoro and finally drop off at Kilimanjaro for our flight home, everything worked perfectly and exactly on time. Bryson was in contact beforehand and throughout to make sure everything was fine. We stayed at three very different lodges as recommended by Bryson, each great in its own way (Melia Serengeti for sheer opulence and Serena Ngorongoro for spectacular location and view were our favourites). The vehicle was comfortable, well equipped and maintained. However, most credit should go to our guide, Estomih. He had great knowledge and understanding of the environment and fantastic enthusiasm to share this with us to show us the best of the spectacular landscape and animals. But more important than that, Estomih was simply an amazing person: helpful, friendly, considerate and reliable. By some distance, we all agreed this was the most enjoyable four days we had ever spent on holiday as a family. It is not the most important factor but, whilst a safari is never cheap, by booking directly with Safari Soles the cost was less than half what a UK travel agent quoted for the same trip. And it goes directly to a small, Arusha based firm and into the local economy. I genuinely cannot think of anything I would change.

The most impressive trip ever!
5/5

Safarisoles Tour is a trustworthy partner for us! They first communicated with us about the detailed intinerary and accommodation plan patiently, and also provided us with lots of assistance during our trip, even in Zanzibar. It turns out that everything including the meals, the camps & lodges, the pickup, and all other services met or even exceeded our expectations.

Our guide, Isaack, is a really nice guy with 8-year safari advanture experience, as well as a "professional teacher", an "excellent risk controller", and an "experienced wildlife hunter"! He introduced a lot about the local culture and natural knowledges to us, and also found each of the BIG FIVE and so many different creatures, making it a perfect tour!

We chose 4 national parks this time - Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Lake Manyara. All 4 parks would never disappoint you in December! It was so lucky for us to meet a group of Lion and witness the elephants' activity in Tarangire in Day 1, though the lions would appear every day later haha. In Day 2, the migration of wildbeast, zebra and impala in Serengeti was absolutely impressive and marvellous. We also spot the cheetah enjoying its meal at a super close distance and witnessed how fast it can run when several black-backed jackals approached its meal. In Day 3, we met a leopard feasting on its prey in the tree right after our breakfast, which made our day! We finally saw the Africa Black Rhinoceros in Ngorongoro in Day 4, which was also really fortunate for us!

We're truly impressed by everything in this intinerary and hope we could come back again!

Safari Soles is the only way to go! Unforgettable adventure with an unforgettable company
5/5

Our safari with Safari Soles was an absolute dream come true. From our first interaction with the booking agent, Regina, to the moment we bid farewell to our incredible guide, Ernest, every aspect of our journey was filled with exceptional communication, itinerary customization, and the warmest hospitality.

Regina, our dedicated booking agent, played a pivotal role in ensuring that our safari experience was tailored to our preferences. We travelled as a group of three and every accommodation was not only beautiful, clean, and exciting in and of itself, but she was able to secure three single beds in each location which made our experience all the better. Her prompt and clear communication made the entire booking process a breeze and she patiently listened to our interests to expertly craft an itinerary that aligned with our desires.

We booked a day in Moshi, a day hike in Kilimanjaro, and 4 days of Safari hitting Tarangire, Serengeti (x2 days), and Ngorogoro crater. After flight difficulties that left us arriving a day late, Regina was communicative in amending our airport pick up and helped ensure we still made our day hike to Kilimanjaro. I cannot emphasize enough how great her communication was - from crafting the itinerary to fit our requests, to providing recommendations, to promptly following up every time I emailed, to communicating over Whatsapp when we arrived, Regina's attention to detail and commitment to customization truly set Safari Soles apart from the rest. The digital itinerary that Safari Soles provides as well is incredible - super informative and fun to share with friends and family.

Our safari adventure truly came to life with our remarkable guide, Ernest. His deep knowledge of the local wildlife and passion for the Sergengeti set our tour apart - he had an answer for every question we threw at him and his driving rivaled Formula 1 when it came to getting us to spots in time to see even the most elusive animals (we saw all of the Big 5!). Ernest's ability to spot animals from a distance is unparalleled. He knew all the best spots to look, filled us in on a myriad of wildlife facts, and gave us ample time to observe / take in the experience. What made Ernest stand out even more was his genuine kindness and thoughtfulness. He went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and safe throughout our journey. Ernest's warm and friendly demeanor created a welcoming and fun atmosphere, allowing us to connect with both him and the wildlife in a truly meaningful way. His patience in answering our questions and sharing fascinating insights made the safari not only an enriching experience, but a truly unforgettable one.

Safari Soles' commitment to excellence was evident in every aspect of our adventure. The accommodations provided were not only luxurious but also perfectly situated to immerse us in the beauty of the surrounding landscapes. The meticulously planned meals showcased the local cuisine and far exceeded our expectations each day more than the last! The entire team's dedication to ensuring our satisfaction and happiness was truly commendable.

If you're seeking a safari adventure that combines the best of wildlife, personalized service, and unforgettable memories, I cannot recommend Safari Soles enough.

A Memorable November Safari Adventure in Tanzania with Expert Guide Innocent
5/5

Our 10-day journey through Tanzania, meticulously planned by Renatus and Safari Soles Tours, offered a unique blend of cultural immersion and wildlife exploration. The adventure featured a 6-day safari spanning Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro, guided by the exceptional safari guide Innocent, with enriching pre-safari experiences in Arusha, led by guides Chief and Andrew.
Our voyage commenced in Arusha, where we spent a day before embarking on the safari. Chief, our friendly and enthusiastic guide, introduced us to the African Cultural Heritage Center, immersed us in the local market culture, and guided us on a serene nature walk at the Kilimamoto crater. These experiences served as a perfect introduction to Tanzania's rich culture and breathtaking landscapes.
The highlight of our trip undoubtedly was the 6-day safari, covering the magnificent terrains of Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro, an unforgettable experience significantly elevated by our guide, Innocent. His profound knowledge and infectious enthusiasm for Tanzania's wildlife and ecosystems transformed our adventure into a once-in-a-lifetime journey.
Tarangire, adorned with numerous elephants and their adorable offspring, as well as playful warthogs, provided a whimsical spectacle. We were also treated to thrilling sightings of cheetahs and lively lion prides with cubs, showcasing the park's diverse wildlife.
The vast expanse of the Serengeti equally mesmerized us. Here, alongside majestic giraffes and elusive leopards, we marveled at the large herds of wildebeest and zebras. Hippos added to the variety of wildlife encounters, while playful warthogs and majestic male lions dotted the landscape, making every moment in the Serengeti memorable.
In Ngorongoro Crater, our experience reached new heights with a distant rhino sighting, a rare and awe-inspiring moment. The vibrant flamingos in the crater added a splash of color, and we continued to be entertained by more male lions and the ever-charming warthogs.
We must emphasize the pivotal role of our guide, whose boundless energy and enthusiasm enriched every moment of our safari. Our daily plans were thoughtfully discussed the night before, accommodating our requests for early morning trips when animal activity peaked. Frequent stops for optimal photography opportunities were made, and park navigation was meticulously coordinated with other drivers. Innocent's captivating storytelling and comprehensive knowledge of Tanzanian wilderness breathed life into each location. His friendly demeanor, sense of humor, and eagerness to share his expertise made our journey both educational and immensely enjoyable. We were fortunate to have Innocent as our guide and driver, ensuring our safety and confidence in experiencing the park to its fullest.

Trip of a Lifetime
5/5

My wife and I had an unforgetable 5 day safari through the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. The itenerary was perfect with plenty of time to spend in the parks with the wildlife. We travelled from Zanzibar to Arusha and then to the Serengeti - all of which was arranged by the tour operator and ran perfectly smoothly. They seemed very flexible and able to adapt to our dates and preferences. Our guide Oscar was excellent with a great knowledge of the parks, knew just how long to spend with the animals and clearly still had a huge enthusiasm for the serengeti and all it has to show us. We saw lions, elephants, giraffes, cheetahs and got a glimpse of a rhino. The lodges were very comfortable and clean. Overall they delivered an unfortgetable experience.
